The resurrection of Jesus Christ is proof to the whole world that Jesus
is indeed the Son of God.
Therefore, His
word is true
, His sacrifice is
sufficient
, and His authority is
supreme
(Acts 17:30-31; Rom 1:4). We can always find blessing and
encouragement in engaging the historical record of this, the greatest event in
history!

On the
first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices
they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when
they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4 While
they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like
lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down
with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not
here; he has risen!
Remember how he told you, while he was still with you
in Galilee: 7 ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of
sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” 8 Then
they remembered his words.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing together as
you walk along?”

They stood
still, their faces downcast.
18 One
of them, named Cleopas, asked him, “Are you only a visitor to Jerusalem and do
not know the things that have happened there in these days?”. . .

25 He said to them,
“How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets
have spoken! 26 Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and
then enter his glory?” 27 And beginning with Moses and all the
Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning
himself. . . .

36 While they were still talking about this, Jesus
himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace
be with you.”

37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a
ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts
rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself!
Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.”

40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and
feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and
amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They
gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in
their presence.

44 He said to them, “This
is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled
that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”

45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand
the Scriptures. 46 He told them,
“This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the
third day, 47 and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be
preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.
48 You
are witnesses of these things. 49 I am going to send you what my
Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power
from on high”
(Luke 24).

Our Father
in heaven, please bless our remembrance
of the resurrection of Jesus our Lord
, to immortality, on this and every
Lord’s Day in some way that will glorify you for the promise keeping God you
are, in Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Peace,
